Tandoori Baked Fish


I used emperor fish (we call it in Arabic ِشعري Shi’ari) to make our lunch. We have rice with fish always, never tried bread with this kind of fish, except for tuna fish.

Anyhow i just wanted to try something new so i mixed two spices together (Fish Masala & Tandoori Masala) and it tasted good.


  • 4 Medium Size Emperor Fish ( شعري = Shi’ari)
  • 2 tbsp Fish Masala
  • 2 tbsp Tandoori Masala
  • 1 tbsp Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp vinegar ( grandma told me to)
  • Salt & Black Pepper
  • Chopped Parsley

Side Stuff:

  • Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Garlic butter
  • Chopped Parsley
  • Salt and Pepper

How to:

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a  bowl.
  2. Add fish marinade for 30 minutes.
  3. Put the fish on the baking tray or baking dish.
  4. Cut potatoes in 3 thick slices and give them cube cuts and cut the tomatoes from top X shape.
  5. Combine garlic butter, chopped parsley and pour the combined mixture in the cuts you made on potatoes and tomatoes.
  6. Place potatoes and tomatoes on the same baking tray with the fish or you can put them separate in another baking dish.
  7. Bake everything for 30-40 minutes or until well-baked.
  8. Serve immediately.
